I walked up to my flat. I was exhauted. Three fires today. It was more than ussual. And I was beat. I sat down on the couch and Loki ran up to me and barked. He wanted his dinner. I nodded and stood up and poured some food into his bowel then went back to the couch. I turned on the tv to try and distract my mind from the fires and soon I fell asleep.
I woke up to my phone going off. I looked at it. It was the reminder that I was having coffee with Zayn. I smiled then jumped up to get ready. I wasn't too sure what to wear so I just wore a simple plaid shirt and some beige skinny jeans. I heard my phone going off in the other room and I ran out of my bathroom to answer. It was Zayn.
"Hey Zayn," I said a bit out of breath.
"You sound out of breath, you alright?" Zayn asked as he laughed.
"Oh yea I just was in the other room," I said. "So whats up?" I asked.
"I was just calling to let you know where we're going to have coffee," Zayn said. "How bout' that little cafe by the river, the one were we met?" Zayn asked.
"Yea sounds great," I said. "What time?" I asked.
"How about at noon?" I agreed and then we hung up.
I looked at the clock. It was 11:30 right now. I smiled at the thought of seeing Zayn again. I walked over to the door and grabbed Loki's leash and walked down to the station. The boys were washing the trucks. Andy saw me and walked over to me.
"Hey captain, where you going?" he asked as he bent down to pet Loki.
"Just out to meet someone, I'll be back soon. Your in charge while I'm gone," I said. "And don't call while I'm out unless you really need to," I said as I waved and walked away. Loki pranced beside me as we walked down the street. As we neared the cafe I could see Zayn. He was wearing a leather jacket. He looked sexy. Did I just think that??
"Hey mate," I said as I walked up to him. "Hope its ok I brought my dog," I said as I motioned to Loki who wagged his tail.
"Not at all, I love dogs," Zayn said as I sat down. I tied Loki's leash to my chair and soon the waitress came and took our order. We both just got a coffee and I got Loki some water.
"So what did you want to give me?" I asked as I bent down to pet Loki who rested his head on . my foot. Zayn picked up a satchel that hung from his chair. He pulled out his sketch book and opened it up to the picture of the river.
"I wanted to give you this," Zayn said as he tore it out of the book. He was careful not to tear the edges or anything. Then he handed it over to me. I took it and admired it. It was absolutely beautiful.
"Thanks Zayn," I said. "Its amazing,"
"I'm glad you liked it," Zayn said.
We talked more after that. Zayn talked about how he got into art and into teaching. I talked about me becoming a firefighter. We found out that we both like to sing too. We continued to talk for a long time until my phone went off. I pulled it out. It was Andy.
"Andy what is it? I'm busy," I hissed as I answered the phone.
"We really need you down here like now," Andy said. He sounded worried which wasn't like him. I quickly hung up and stood up.
"Damn it," I said as I untied Loki.
"Whats wrong?" Zayn asked.
"Work, we have an emergency," I said. "Thanks for inviting me to coffee," I said as I grabbed my picture and ran down the street with Loki trailing behind.
